This rosary features Mexican jasper stones, the Via Crucis Crucifix, black 550 paracord, and a round Saint Benedict Medal. The Saint Benedict medal is used to ward off spiritual and physical dangers, especially those related to evil, poison, and temptation. David triumphed over Goliath with a staff, five stones, and a sling. Overthrow your Goliath with a crucifix, five decades of hand cut stones, and a cord. There is something special about praying with the weight and feel of hand cut stone beads, using beads fashioned from God's creation. These rosaries weigh approximately 200 grams and are 20 inches long, with some variation because they are hand made. Want to customize a stone rosary?
